Hi. Recently, an updated syslinux got uploaded. It does not insist on mounting images anymore. I've created a patch eliminating USER_MOUNT_HACK from the $(IMAGE) target in d-i/build/arch/linux-i386. (But not from the clean target, this might be added now or later.) While testing (with "fakeroot make fakeroot make image", or rather with "TYPE=net FLOPPY_SIZE=2880" added due to disk full errors), I noticed that the assignment of the UDEBS variable at the top of d-i/build/Makefile has (for the kernel udebs) a "\n" on the subsitution side of a sed s/.../.../ command, which does not work with the woody version of sed. While this is clearly a minor to no bug, I think a space would work as well in that situation. Possibly, the elimination of USER_MOUNT_HACK should wait until syslinux 2.0.4 hits testing. Cheers T.
